Pause for Thought

Happy holiday.

For some parents the word “holiday” might conjure up more stress than happiness, as they wonder how to cope with children at home for six weeks; for others it can bring financial worries but, for most of us I hope, it’s a call to fun, peace and joy. 
The word itself comes from the Old English halig daeg meaning both a religious festival and a day of recreation, so take the stress out of your holiday by just finding time to relax and appreciate the wonder of God’s beautiful world. 
May your holiday be blessed by Him. 
Reverend Peter Hunt, St Helen’s, Oldcotes.
